Praise Of Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva
Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva’s wonders are difficult to compare,
as he manifests his golden countenance everywhere.
Beings of the three realms and six paths hear his wonderful Dharma,
and those of the four births and ten kinds receive his benevolent kindness.
His bright gem illuminates thoroughly heaven’s road,
and his golden staff jolts open hell’s gates.
Many kalpas’ relatives who received his guidance,
by the nine lotus thrones’ shore [of Amitābha Buddha’s Pure Land]
prostrate to the kind and honoured one.
Homage to Mount Jiǔhuá’s and hell realm’s
one with great loving-kindness and great compassion,
the fundamentally honoured Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva.
Homage to Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva.
The 四生 Four Births are those with
 卵生 egg birth,
 胎生 womb birth,
 湿生 moisture birth, and
 化生 manifested birth.
The 十类 Ten Kinds are those with
 有色 with form,
 无色 without form,
 有想 with thought,
 无想 without thought,
 非有想 not with thought,
 非无想 not without thought, and
those with 四生 Four Births.
